WEBINAR: Thursday, November 2, 8-9:15 PM
Join Moving Traditions for an honest one-hour conversation about how parents and teens can keep talking about the war in Israel and Gaza even as we may find ourselves with very different sources of information, peer groups, and possible responses to the ongoing war.
Moving Traditions CEO Shuli Karkowsky will sit down with a panel of experts to talk about the psychology behind how teens process the news, strategies to foster discussion when you agree and when you don't, and how to set boundaries for discourse and root those boundaries in love. The panel will include: • Dr. Julie Hirschfeld, a psychologist and parent coach • Dr. Jonathan Golden, Director of Drew University’s Center on Religion, Culture & Conflict • Rabbi Daniel Brenner, Moving Traditions' VP of Education • Emily Levine, a Kol Koleinu Teen Feminist Fellow who attends Scarsdale High School in NY and Westchester Reform Temple

Thursday, November 2 at Noon on Zoom
The horrific, unprovoked attack by Hamas terrorists on October 7 brought massive devastation, destruction and death to more than 1,400 innocent people, and more than 200 Israelis are still being held hostage in Gaza. The people of Israel are fighting for the safety and security of our Jewish homeland, nothing less.
It is important to know that the Jewish people are not alone right now and that we have the support of all people of good will, and — in particular — the men and women who represent us. Please join our four South Florida Federations and other Jewish community organizations for an opportunity to hear firsthand from our communities’ elected officials at this critical moment.
